I should be so lucky (lucky, lucky, lucky)

I have a Google News Alert set to email me whenever something truffle-like pops up on the net. Ninety percent of the time it’s stuffed with restaurant reviews where ambitious chefs are overusing wholly artificial truffle oils to be trendy, or chocolate is involved, but sometimes it comes with a gem like this one from the BBC. Not only does it feature an English village straight out of Miss Marple or Midsomer Murders – Little Bedwyn – but it reports the finding of 10kg of summer truffles (Tuber aestivum) on one farm.

Not much time for musings on this – too many bills to pay – but I rather hope my T uncinatum are as prolific…
